Hannity: Media Has Been ‘Colluding the Entire Time’ to Delegitimize Trump’s Election


Sean Hannity‘s Friday night monologue, after a day of new revelations about Donald Trump Jr.‘s meeting with a Russian lawyer, focused on how the real collusion is coming from Democrats and the liberal media.

Hannity, who conducted the much-talked-about interview with the President’s son earlier this week, brought up the reported connection between the firm behind that Trump dossier and individuals in that meeting room.

As he went point-by-point, he concluded that “once again as we begin to peel back the layers of this onion and learn more and more about truth and facts, this is now boomeranging back on to the Democratic Party.”

But then he also went off on the media too:

“But first, the Democrats [and] the destroy-Trump media have for months breathlessly, hysterically been feigning moral outrage and pushing those black helicopter tin foil hat conspiracy theories about collusion, when in fact they are now the ones––they have been colluding the entire time, all in an effort to damage, to delegitimize, and ultimately overturn an election of you the American people and destroy the president.”

In particular he pointed to some of the WikiLeaks revelations from the campaign season.

Hannity said there’s a massive double standard behind why “Clinton was given a free pass by the media despite a mountain of evidence of felonies, crimes, wrongdoing, inexcusable behavior, and it’s why now the media refuses to even cover massive scandals that you, the American people, need to know about.”

Hannity went through a list of Clinton-related scandals as he argued there is just so much the media isn’t covering as the Trump Jr. news continues to unfold.

During a later segment of the show, Hannity told his guests that if Donald Trump Jr. is going to talk to Robert Mueller, John Podesta, Robby Mook, and Hillary Clinton should be questioned too.
